CHAOS SPAWN, Commission 08/2004
This is my first, last, and only commissioned piece. I did this Chaos
Spawn for Chris Hagness. It's made of parts from seven different
miniatures, lots of green stuff, and hundreds of one-hour sessions. I
worked on this puppy in those rare moments my baby daughter let me sneak
off to the miniatures shop.
I based the color scheme on various types of fish, with a strong pirhana
influence. The critter is not attached to a base and is able to stand on
its own six legs just fine.
The display base for it is a ruined shrine to Death and Blight. There are
tiny little pips in some of the terrain for the mini's claws to catch so
it can keep its dynamic pose.
Many photos were taken of the entire development of this project. I am
currently writing a "how I did it" tutorial for later posting. In the
meantime, you can look over the nasty beast and try to guess which parts
came from what, and just what bitz went into that base.

...kiss my slimey green butt!
The left side, which is assymmetrical... like Chaos SHOULD be.
For scale, here's a hapless adventurer about to be eaten.
The display base sans-critter.

Safe and sound under the dome.
